Cross Canada Road Trip on Exposure | Dyanne Wilson

For quite some time I have wanted to head back to the Northwest Territories to revisit and photograph some of the places where I grew up particularly the culture, the land and its people. Last January while out on assignment for the Government of Scotland, I was photographing the Sir John A. MacDonald annual Kilt Skate on the Rideau Canal in -30C weather. We dropped into the Shaw Centre (formerly Ottawa Convention Centre) to warm up and visit the Spectacular NWT exhibit. I had asked if they needed any photographers up north but it seemed they were more in need of Chartered Accountants which is what my husband does. To make a long story short, Eddie was offered a good position in Yellowknife, NWT! The offer was to good to pass up and what an adventure it would be…….

NYC with the Fujifilm X-T1, 14mm, 18-55mm | Mike St. Jean

Periodically my son and I schedule a „Boy Day“ in which the two of us take off and do something together. Unfortunately, as he gets older, Boy Day with my son happens with less frequency. Feeling the loss, I brought Boy Day back with a vengeance last Sunday and booked us bus tickets from Providence for a day in New York City. Of course Boy Day in NYC came with the requisite photo nerd gear anxieties: What camera(s) do I take? Will I have the right lenses? Will it be too heavy? I should have popped the Fujinon 27mm on the X-T1, or better yet the smaller X-E1, slid it into the pocket of my fleece, and been done with it. Instead I had to over-complicate things. You see, I was also thinking of using Boy Day in NYC as a photographic dry-run for Boy Week and a trip to Peru my son and I are considering. So mentally, not only I was packing gear for a day in the city, but I was also hiking up Machu Picchu……

Hello Istanbul | Gregor Harih

We’ve been thinking for a long time to make a trip to Istanbul. Many times while travelling to the East, we had a connecting flight through Istanbul. Fortunately or unfortunately, each time we had a relatively short stop, which prevented us to leave the airport and take a quick look at this interesting city. Therefore, as soon as the Photoclub Maribor got an interesting offer from a local travel agency for a long weekend in Istanbul, we immediately decided to take it and enjoy a long weekend there. The offer was limited to winter months, so we opted for one of the weekends in February. When the date of departure was coming closer, the weather forecast was getting worse and worse. The night before our flight up to a metre of new snow has been announced. Therefore we have booked an apartment near the Zagreb airport and headed there a day before the flight. We were just hoping that the flight next day would not be cancelled because of the snow. The driving to the airport/apartment itself has been anything but fun, since it already started to snow. The roads were covered with snow, but with a slow pace it was possible to make progress. Upon arrival at the apartment, the snowfall intensified even further vanishing our hopes for the flight……

See Agra and then quickly head for Gwalior | Paul Perton

Gwalior. Not on the itinerary of many India visitors and it really should be. I’d added it to ours on a whim – the evening before the details of our tour were set in stone, I’d been idly remembering a series of British steam locomotives that had been named in the ’30s after various Commonwealth countries, provinces and cities. Amongst them, Gwalior. Not very PC in this insane world of being frightened of offending people, but there was an easy two day slot in our schedule. So, why not? I’m glad we did.The observant amongst you will quickly realise that I’ve skipped Agra and the Taj Mahal. Not. That’s about to happen. In truth, Gwalior probably ought to rank equally with the TM and if you’ve been there before, do replace it on your list of places to see……….

North Korea – Beyond the 38th parallel | John Woot

I set foot into the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) for a week in June 2015, to see and experience from within one of the most reclusive countries in the world. Disclaimer: I bear no political affiliation to the DPRK and all views and opinions expressed are of my own. Not that it mattered anyway. And be warned, this post is pretty lengthy.

Kim II-Sung Square – One of Pyongyang’s mandatory visits with the prominent Grand People’s Study House. Like the Tianamen Square, Kim II-Sung Square is equally imposing in grandeur, size and cultural significance, sans the large mob of tourists. Once you enter the Grand People’s Study House, you are greeted with marbled interiors and well-endowed facilities room after room, buzzing with various pedagogical activities. Computerized catalogs running on windows XP, large polished marble pillars, free consultation rooms actively manned by professors, english books, Mandarin lessons, huge lecture halls, etc, etc……

West – The Red Centre of Australia . Part 2 | Noah Stammbach

I’ve heard and read about the outback being empty, with not much to see and not worth the travel. We Aussies prefer to live on the coast, leaving the vast interior of Australia as no-man’s land. I yearned to explore this expanse; to be alone in the barren plains and to feel the red spirit of Australia. It was difficult to find people keen for such a huge trip. The first time I met Johnny we talked about ferns and grasses (he’s a landscape architect) which happened to lead to the topic of the outback. We then recruited Koentadi (of @koentadyy) who was ready for his first Aussie roadtrip. Planning began in secret. We wanted to be the first to venture inland; far away from the typical destinations of the NSW coast. Some moments from this trip took me to the edge between calm and panic, but there’s always an unquestionable solace to be found in the middle of nowhere. Click here for part 1 of the trip, a story about the staggering variety of landscapes that unfolds in layers from Sydney to the outback……

Best Mirrorless Camera for Travel: Fuji X-T1 | Kate McCulley

This spring, I made a big decision that more and more travel photographers are making: I decided to switch from a DSLR to a mirrorless camera. In other words, I said farewell to the Nikon D5100 that I had been using for two years in favor of the Fuji X-T1, a mirrorless model. And I could not be happier about it! DSLRs are the big professional cameras with lenses that you see pro photographers and serious amateurs use. They have mirrors in their bodies — the light enters the camera, reflects off a mirror, and hits the sensor. By contrast, mirrorless cameras omit the mirror. For that reason, they’re much smaller and lighter, yet they provide a similar quality. All of the photos you’re about to see in this post, excluding the selfie of me with the camera at the top, were taken with my Fuji X-T1.

Marrakech and Ozoud Falls | Luke Walker

Foolishly forgetting that we’d be visiting peak summer when the temperature would be a scorching 40+ degrees, a few weeks back my brother and I decided to take a trip to Marrakech, a place I’d wanted to visit for some time. Despite a somewhat aggressive confrontation with some locals on arrival and frustrating encounters with several souk owners on the first day, we loved it. And the heat wasn’t that bad. The two of us spent just under a week exploring Marrakech’s labyrinth of narrow alleys, visiting the main points of interest, sampling the local food and relaxing in bars with gorgeous panoramic terraces. We also took a trip to the province of Azilal, 150km northeast of Marrakech, to see the breathtaking Ouzoud Falls (photos towards the end of this post). Marrakech is great. The colours, smells, energy and atmosphere. I’d love to visit again……..

A journey to Marrakesh | Jesper Storgaard Jensen

I’m Danish, born in 1964, and have been living in Rome since 1997. I have always loved writing and at a certain point, after my arrival in Rome, I started to collaborate with magazines producing travel articles. It was from this that the Danish Daily wanted to publish a travel article of mine from an Italian island. Unfortunately the PR-photos were of a too poor quality. In other words, I had to do the photos myself. This is when I purchased my first ever 5-mega-pixel camera. That was back in 2003, and since then, my interest in photography has been steadily increasing. I had been working for the Danish Embassy in Rome for ten years, but in 2009 I took the jump to become a full time freelance journalist and photographer shooting travel, culture, food & wine and interviews. Everything with my own imagery. We – a total of eight persons – were doing a 7 day on-the-road-trip round Morocco, two days of which were spent in Marrakesh. As I needed to travel light, I packed only my Fuji gear – Fuji X-E2, the 18-55mm kit lens and the 35 mm lens for portraits & food. I must say that I find this a excellent combination and the overall weight is significantly reduced compared to DSLR gear…….

Fuji vs Nashville…… | Bill Fortney

I’ve been in Nashville, Tennessee all week with our Third Annual Nashville/Ricky Skaggs Americana Workshop.  Country Music/Bluegrass Legend (14 rimes Grammy Winner!) Ricky Skaggs is also an accomplished photographer and good friend and he and I, plus Jim Begley and John “Snake” Barrett, and Nick Coury, run this annual workshop during Nashville’s Bluegrass Month.  While we have been shooting the many fantastic locations around Nashville, I’ve been giving the X-System lenses a workout and thought I might share some of the images from this weeks shoot! Tonight the entire group will go to Ricky and Kentucky Thunders concert at the Historic Ryman Theatre, images from that tomorrow! At Marathon Motorworks we always shoot the decorative tool door at the Motor works offices. Fuji X-T1 with the 16-55……
